Aaron Paul says his middle school summers were “the greatest of his life”.
The 34-year-old actor grew up in the state of Idaho, located in picturesque Midwest.
And Aaron recalls his days as a preteen with fondness because he can’t remember having as much of a good time as he did when school was out on summer break.
“That’s eighth-grade summer, right? That was the greatest summer of my life,” Paul told MTV News while promoting his new film Hellion. “The summer nights in Idaho, roller-blading around, sneaking into girls houses, getting chased away from their fathers. It was so fun!”
Aaron is well-known for playing Jesse Pinkman in Breaking Bad, a TV show about crystal meth drug dealers.
But the star wouldn’t ever classify himself as a wild child in his youth.
“I wasn’t a bad kid, but I just liked to roller-blade and make out with girls,” he shared.
His forthcoming drama Hellion centers on a feuding father and son who have to make amends in order to save their family.
A lot of heavy metal was included in the feature’s soundtrack, but this genre of music wouldn’t be found anywhere in Aaron’s music collection.
“Definitely not [into] metal, but I think it’s a perfect fit for this film,” he said. “I’m more of like a Radiohead guy.”
Hellion, which also stars Juliette Lewis, is released in theaters this weekend.
